Miss Great Britain Loses Her Crown After Having Sex On TV


Today’s edition of “let’s shame women for liking sex” comes from the United Kingdom, where Miss Great Britain was stripped of her title after a “steamy romp” was captured on a reality show.

20-year-old Zara Holland, who was crowned Ms. Great Britain in September 2015, was taking part in a dating show called Love Island on ITV2 when she was caught on film with “24-year-old Wolverhampton scaffolder Alex” (brb, Googling “scaffolder”). After the footage of their bedroom activities aired on Wednesday night, the pageant officials dropped an announcement on Thursday rescinding Holland’s crown. In a statement:

Following recent actions within ITV2 show Love Island it is with deep regret that we, the Miss Great Britain Organisation, have to announce that Zara Holland has formally been de-crowned as Miss Great Britain.

As an organisation we have not taken this decision lightly, we are close to all of our winners and wherever possibly stand by them during their rein.

That said, we feel we have no choice but to make this decision under the circumstances.

The feedback we have received from pageant insiders and members of the general public is such that we cannot promote Zara as a positive role model moving forward.

We wholly understand that everyone makes mistakes, but Zara, as an ambassador for Miss Great Britain, simply did not uphold the responsibility expected of the title.

I was unaware that one of the “responsibilities expected of the title” was to remain a virgin forever. But seriously, I’m pretty sure that Holland would have had to check with pageant bosses before going on the show, right? So what exactly did they think was going to happen on a show called Love Island? That everyone was going to sit around and play checkers while wearing chastity belts and drinking water? Have these people never seen The Bachelor?

While the slut-shaming folks at Miss Great Britain don’t think Zara is a “positive role model,” I’m pretty sure most of us do. A girl who takes control of her sex life? You go, girlfriend.

There really did used to be 2NOTBrokeGirls, but since one of them spent all of her money on shoes and vodka, there's now just one (financially stable) J, who is too lazy to change her user name. J spends her free time saving the world, one sorority girl at a time (usually while wearing yoga pants), questioning why she decided to go to graduate school, and documenting her love of all things cheese related. You can ask her anything you want about football, using your boobs to get what you want, and pizza at @2NOTBrokeGirls on Twitter or
